    Sweet dearest Aunt Ted, what an angel. So many wonderful memories spending time with you and your family from the time I was just a few years old. I will always remember the loving sweet kind lady you always were to anyone you encountered. I will smile every time I think of you. Just like seeing your sweet smile every time I saw you. Love you so much. Praying for the wonderful children you and Uncle Jack raised and praying for my sweet precious Uncle Jack.

    Aunt Ted,
    Such a beautiful and sweet lady. You will be missed. I have such great memories staying at you and Uncle Jack's house in beaumont as a kid and our families spending time together. You were always so kind and loving.
    Rest in peace with God.
